SediVue Dx Urine Sediment Analyzer

The new standard for in-house urine sediment analysis

  • Delivers consistent, accurate results in approximately 3 minutes* from only 165 μL (4–5 drops) of fresh uncentrifuged urine.
  • Examines the equivalent of 45 high-power fields, then identifies and classifies elements within the sediment.
  • Produces high-resolution, high-contrast digital images that can be shared in real time.
  • Leverages cutting-edge Neural Network technology to better identify abnormalities with each result generated.

Neural Network 4.0

  • Leverages the collective learnings of 175 million patient images from IDEXX SmartService Solutions to guide confident medical decisions.
  • Uses advanced Neural Network 4.0 algorithmic software and machine-learning capabilities that enable the analyzer to better identify abnormalities with each result generated.

Inverted microscope with built-in camera

  • Examines the equivalent of 45 high-power fields from beneath the sample to maximize visibility of clinically relevant particles.
  • Captures 70 high-resolution images per run.
  • Autofocuses on each shot for crisp images.
  • Adjusts exposure with each image to ensure optimal contrast.

Purpose-built onboard gravitational centrifuge

  • Spins at a significantly lower force than most in-house centrifuges to preserve delicate casts that external centrifuges break apart and to ensure sample integrity.
  • In 30 seconds, gently deposits formed elements into a monolayer at the bottom of the cartridge.

High-resolution digital images

Images provide diagnostic proof in real-time

The following cases show how veterinarians used results to determine next steps quickly and confidently.

Elements identified
Clinical decisions
Red blood cells, white blood cells, and bacilla Red blood cells, white blood
cells, and bacilli
The veterinarian confirmed a urinary tract infection was present during the visit. A urine sample was submitted for quantitative urine culture and antimicrobial sensitivities.
Ammonium biurate crystals Ammonium biurate crystals Liver disease was suspected, and the veterinarian followed up with a bile acids test. Abdominal radiographs revealed a small liver, and an ultrasound with color-flow Doppler confirmed the presence of a portosystemic shunt.
Numerous nonhyaline casts Numerous nonhyaline casts  Renal tubular injury was indicated, and the veterinarian recommended the IDEXX SDMA Test and a repeat urinalysis in 2 weeks.
Numerous nonsquamous epithelial cells Numerous nonsquamous epithelial cells The veterinarian followed up with a stained, cytological slide preparation, further classifying the cells as transitional cell carcinoma.
